It was Mrs. Orton's 47th birthday. They had been away from home all day and into the evening, and had just reached home when the guests drove up. Oysters and other refreshments were brought and at about ten o'clock supper was served. Mrs. Orton was also the recipient of some nice presents. The party broke up about one o'clock and all went home feeling they had a good time.

      Newspaper Obituary - May 27, 1926 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek - Mrs Ethel S. Orton - Elizabeth Kilburn was born in the town of Sandy Creek, March 15th, 1848, where her early life was passed. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Kilburn. Fifty six years ago she was united in marriage with Ethel S. Orton and came to reside where she lived the remainder of her days, in Meacham District. Mrs. Orton was active in Grange work and when able took her share in all good work of the community. For forty years she was the correspondent for the Sandy Creek News. She was faithful in the discharge of duty. It can be truthfully said of her "she hath done what she could," in kindly service in the home and community. Her death came Thursday, May 20, 1936, after months of great suffering. Funeral services were held at the home, Sunday afternoon, at half-past one, conducted by Byron G. Seamons, at the request of Mrs. Orton. O. B. Sprague and daughter, Mildred, of Richland, sang a selection. Burial took place in Woodlawn cemetery in Sandy Creek. Mrs. Orton is survived by her husband, one brother, William Kilburn, of Richland, and one sister, Mrs. Betsey Kilburn Gurley, of Pulaski, the last of a family of twelve children. There was a very large gathering of friends present at the funeral, most emphatically emphasizing the esteem in which Mrs. Orton was held. Many beautiful floral tributes were evidence of many enduring friendships. Relatives were present from Rochester, Watertown, Oswego, Syracuse, Lacona, Pulaski and Sandy Creek.
